Avid and Haivision Deliver on Secure Remote IP Contribution in Live Production Environments

Avid® (Nasdaq: AVID) today announced a partnership with Haivision (TSX: HAI), a leading provider of mission-critical, real-time video streaming and networking solutions, to enable the ingest of incoming IP streams for television news and remote live TV production scenarios in both on-premises and cloud-based production workflows. This is the first of several partnerships building on the launch of MediaCentral® | Stream to simplify workflows and provide an unparalleled level of openness for broadcasters and content providers.

The partnership between Avid and Haivision provides clients with a complete solution for live IP video ingest and editing. As part of the partnership, Avid will resell and integrate Haivision products, including the Makito X4 video encoder and Haivision Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) Gateway. This new capability significantly simplifies remote IP contribution by streamlining workflows and making remotely generated content delivered via IP quickly available for production.

Users can now ingest live content from anywhere with MediaCentral | Stream and Haivision’s Makito X4 low-latency video encoder. The Makito X4 streams live HD and UHD content over any mobile or fixed IP network using the open-source protocol SRT originally developed by Haivision for delivering high-quality video over IP networks.
